One of the things i really liked about that tour was the Complimentary Airport pick up and drop off service. Next best thing was the accommodation, though our hotels were not 5 stars, but they were very clean and comfortable hotels. The organization of the our was amazing. We really enjoyed 17-Mile Drive, Lombard Street, Bridal Veil Waterfall, Santa Barbara, Pacific Coastlines, Silicon Valley, Solvang, , Lone Cypress, UC Berkeley, Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Straight, Cable Car, San Diego Sea World, Fisherman’s Wharf, Palace of Fine Arts, Stanford University, Roaring Camp, Palm Spring Outlets, Central California Valley, Palazzo, Redwood Forest, Disneyland, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Yosemite National Park and Grand Canyon

when a close friend of mine told me about this 10 day bus trip that we are going to board on it, many questions came to mind about it as I have never taken any bus tour before, but I got all the answers when I finally departed from LA. The started out pretty fine, all the hotels, destinations, buses, and tour-guide were just as perfect as we wanted them to be, but the admission charges, food, and all the minor things cost me a lot which I hadn’t even anticipated. And of course, San Francisco, 17 miles, University of Berkeley, and countless other places were marvelous. Lodgings were also perfect!

 I am really glad that we chose to go to the Disneyland because that place is like the most fun place that one could ever visit, not matter the mood is it would cheer you up. Ah! The tour went really awesome for my family members on board. We couldn’t ask for anything more as we received everything we required to a have the best tour experience. Chocolate Factory, the Las Vegas hotel exploration excursion, Grand Canyon, Golden Gate Bridge, Yosemite Park, such a wonderful places they all are! Thank You for this wonderful tour, Cheers!!

We completely enjoyed our 10 days West Coast Tour and the magnificent views of Yosemite and Grand Canyon West Rim. The Theme parks were wonderful. It was so inspirational seeing her so close and imaging our forefathers coming across her on their travels to America.
